Ok, I’m a bit obsessed with wraps at the moment. Bfree’s Sweet Potato Wraps are only 95 Kcal each so they’re a good choice, especially if you’re gluten free and fed up of potatoes and rice!
I was originally cooking a tandoori chicken recipe for my husband and myself. When I opened the healthy pouch of sauce it smelt strongly of star anise, which is one of the flavours I can’t stand. So he got his curry with rice (he enjoyed it) and I needed a quick adaptation for myself.
So here it is:
100g chicken pieces – 106 Kcal
Tesco stir fry medley pack (minus the chilli) – 78 Kcal
15g Aldi sweet chilli sauce – 29 Kcal
Bfree Sweet Potato Wrap – 95 Kcal
- Stir fry the chicken and vegetables in a wok.
- Add the chilli sauce.
- Serve on a wrap.
